Turn stop Broken in Lay down

'05 R1200RT. Missed Bambi, but laid it down left side going high.

VERY Lucky, but.....handlebars now do not stop turning left.
Think it is frame or triple tree part.

Help?

Re: Turn stop Broken in Lay down

Aftermarket turn stops are available, I know.
Trying to determine if OEM stops are on the upper clamp of triple tree.
I got away without damage to forks or suspension, but stops sheared off.

Trying to determine options if anyone similar experience.

Re: Turn stop Broken in Lay down

To answer my own questions....

The aftermarket steering stop from Wunderlich is easy access and only $130.
Stock stops are indeed on the top member of the triple tree and that part is considerably
more expensive.

If steering geometry gets affected (my case luckily not) you may have to go the OEM route.
But might benefit preventive installation of the aftermarket.

For what it is worth from my recent disaster.

Yes, Some GS riders do this to prevent trouble. The RT riders don't think they will fall but it happens.
